1. IF YOU TEND TO HAVE A SHORT FUSE: DON'T PIER FISH. THERE ARE OTHER PLACES SUCH AS THE SURF OR IN A BOAT.
2. WHEN IN ROME DO AS THE ROMANS DO. IF EVERYBODY FISHES IN THE SAME GENERAL MANNER THERE ARE LIKELY TO BE LESS TANGLES AND ANIMOSITY TOWARDS THE PERSON WHO WANTS TO FISH DIFFERENTLY THAN HIS SURROUNDING ANGLERS.
3.MIND YOUR CASTING. KEEP YOUR CAST STRAIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE ROOM TO CAST OUT WITHOUT TANGLING DON'T CAST OUT INTO A READY MADE TANGLE.
4. IF YOU DO CAST OVER SOMEONES LINE (AND SOONER OR LATER YOU WILL) SIMPLY WALK TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THEM AND PASS YOUR ROD OVER THEIRS AS SOON AS IT HAPPENS. THEN REEL IN. A FRIENDLY ADMISSION WILL EASE THE TENSION IF THERE IS ANY. GO BACK AND CAREFULLY RECAST.
5. IF SOMEONE CAST OVER YOU AND DOES NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAR IT LET THEM NO AS POLITELY AS YOU CAN: BUT BE FOREWARNED THAT IF YOUR LINE CROSSES IN FRONT OF THEM YOU HAD BETTER JUST REEL YOURS IN AND PUT IT OUT IN FRONT OF YOU WITHOUT A FUSS.
6. DO NOT CAST OUT A BOTTOM RIG AMONGST A BUNCH OF PLUGGERS OR KING FISHERMEN see RULE #2
7. DON'T TRY TO PLUG OR KINGFISH AMONGST A GROUP OF BOTTOM FISHERMEN
8. DON'T TRY TO HORN IN ON SOMEONE ELSES SPOT.
9. FOLLOW THE PIER RULES; ALL OF THEM NOT JUST THE ONES THAT YOU LIKE.
10. TREAT EVERYBODY LIKE YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED IF YOU WERE IN THEIR SHOES. NOT EVERYBODY HAS A CHANCE TO BECOME AN EXPERT CASTER AND FISHERMAN SO BE WILLING TO GIVE THEM A BREAK AND HELP THEM INSTEAD OF BERATING THEM. YOU WILL LOOK A LOT BETTER IN THE EYES OF OTHERS IF YOU ARE PATIENT AND HELPFUL RATHER THAN A GROUCH. OCASIONALLY YOU WILL BE REPAID MANYFOLD FOR A GOOD ATTITUDE TOWARDS OTHERS.
